Your snark aside, that's what most are concerned about - the rushing aspect. But we'll also ignore how BC's offense contributed to that, what with five 3 and outs, the longest offensive drive lasting 3:19, two drives exceeding 20 yards, 10 drives of 20 yards or less, and gaining a grand total of 241 yards on 62 plays.

When he was negative recruiting against Hoke he said "it isn't negative recruiting if it's true." Well James...?

OSU has won a natty under Meyer and just sent eleventy bazillion kids to the NFL last draft. No "need" of multiple satellite camps.
There have been quite a few predictions by those in the know (Wiltfong, Lorenz, et al) for DPJ to Michigan, based on a bit of tea leaf reading and more "tangible" evidence.There also have been substantive updates.
No updates from Wilson as he has gone radio silent. iirc many expect it to come down to Michigan or Alabama.
Michigan is in on quite a few top notch OL. They're considered the favorites for JKP and Ambry Thomas. Alabama has become increasingly pessimistic about Nico Collins while Michigan's confidence is increasing. Lots of background noise wrt their recruiting yes, but some great music being played if you tune in.

Wait a minute...

recently competed at the Nike Opening regional in Jersey (May), which resulted in his Opening invite July 5-10. Figured his bump had more to do with scouts being able to eye him then.
"At the regional combine St. Juste ran a 4.64 40-yard dash, a 3.93 in the 20-yard agility shuttle, and a 34.9 vertical jump."

"Here’s a classic Awful Announcing clip. During Saturday’s Michigan State-Indiana game, Connor Cook threw a touchdown to Aaron Burbridge in the corner of the endzone. Inexplicably, Patrick excitedly called it an interception by Indiana’s Rashard Fant even though it was the most obvious touchdown in the history of college football."
Tons of the above coupled with regularly making up player names (not mispronouncing - totally misnaming)...ugh

|10 weeks 3 days ago||They're calling it a "Rutgers-Michigan satellite camp duel"||
So...probably done on purpose.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||That's media narrative.||
They were very easy classes with exams/papers with "rigorous" work requirements similar to the infamous "how many points is a 3-point shot worth" exam question, hence - in part - the failure to monitor academic support charge. The actual report researching the "irregular" classes is listed below.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Absolutely love these||
Don't have a grasp of the technical aspects of the blocking/defense alignments, but I recall many discussing the eventual "Standfordization" of the offense - and it's fairly easy, even to the untrained eye, to see how this is taking shape. I tend to look at the old Stanford vs VT game as a baseline for how cohesive the blocking appears to be, and yep...can see elements slowly popping up here and there. Not the earth-plowing-blocking-in-unison quite yet...but getting there.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Two things||
Roy Williams' name was never mentioned in the Wanstein Report that came out so not sure why some are surprised that the men's BB program wouldn't be targeted. Also the NCAA's original LOIC charges levied against UNC weren't permissible/enforceable under the current bylaws. That's why the original charge of impermissible benefits was replaced with a failure to monitor academic support charge.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Haha @ Wendy Williams'||
"How you doin'?"
Not that I watch the show. Or know that she says that. Just kinda heard from sources that's who says it.
I'll...go drink another Cosmo now.

It's apparently a fan edit...

Also might be how Don Brown defended against another rather unruly rushing attack, the flexbone triple option:
Of note (lol):
"Before Coach Brown’s chalk talk at the 2016 Michigan Football Clinic even began, a coach in the crowd asked him how he defended the base flexbone formation that Georgia Tech runs.
The first thing Coach Brown responded with was “I hate that week, I can’t do shit.”'

|14 weeks 4 days ago||JJ's recruitment may have been clean||
Self has quite the history, though.
Darnell Jackson, JR Giddens, Julian Wright, Mario Chalmers (hired his father until they won the championship, after which Ronnie Chalmers resigned), Brandon Rush, Sherron Collins, Darnell Jackson. In '06, probabion for LOIC (by electing NOT to maintain a compliance department they didn't detect/report violations in a timely manner, and were thus able to claim statute of limitations on many violations) for illegal payments to potential recruits, illegal payments given to recruits with approval of coaching staff, and illegal payments given to players after eligibility is exhausted. After that, Darrell Arthur (didn't pass high school), Xavier Henry...that's up to 2009. All instances where they were cited for payments, changing grades, payments AND changing grades, changing payments...lots of lovely improprieties.

After Urb swooped in and nabbed Haskins and that LB I believe from MD, it sure didn't work (assuming the conspiracy theory is accurate).

OP's name looks familiar. I'm pretty sure he accompanied Hand on a few visits (UM and OSU at least).
